File size: 1 MB
Clinical psychologist Richard Ryder approaches three iconic celebrities – Horatio Nelson, Adolph Hitler, and Diana Princess of Wales – as though they were his patients and presents a short psycho-biography of each. Beneath their obvious differences he finds striking similarities in their backgrounds and early experience, especially being deprived of their mothers’ love. In a short Epilogue the author asks what lessons might be learned for the future from these three famous figures of the past.
